The Mad Hatter Comes to Tea

Standard

Inspired by the hope of a cheap burrito at Chipotle (only $3!), I created a Halloween costume again this year.  Maybe you remember my fox costume from last year.  This year, I was the (Mad) Hatter from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

All the elements of the outfit were items I already owned, with the exception of the bow tie, which was just a piece of fabric I folded up and tied and then tied around my neck, and the hat.  I made the hat by looking at pictures of hats others had made, but I leaned most heavily on this tutorial.  I didn’t follow every step, but if you ever want to make a high-quality, long-lasting Mad Hatter hat, Badia’s tutorial is the one to use.  This pin from Pinterest also helped.  I went for medium quality, but it turned out great and people easily figured out who I was.  Also, I got a burrito from Chipotle for $3, so it was totally worth it.
